Products I love that help with my less than perfect skin!

I just wanted to share briefly products that I love that were recommended by my dermatologist.  I've always had acne since puberty and tried all sorts of things.  The past 7 years I've consistently used proactive and my skin looked pretty good but after I had Dylan, my skin was glowing, it was awesome!  Fast forward to when he turned 5 months old, my skin freaked out!  It was so bumpy and rough and just started to get more and more acne.  It was like I was reliving my teen years again.  The doctor said I had borderline rosacea.  She also prescribed Finacea and another topical treatment that is a gentler version of Retin-A that I totally spaced the name.  Here's what my dermatologist recommended for face wash and moisturizer and I now LOVE!  Hope this is helpful especially those that have PCOS and experience acne because of it.

CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser. This is for normal to oily skin, they also have one for dry skin.

CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion PM  - 3 fl oz
CeraVe lotion.  This totally calmed my skin down and the dermatologist recommended using it before topical acne medications to reduce the irritation.

I know Target, Costco, and Walgreens carry them. 


  1. Thanks Brandi! I totally have OUT OF CONTROL SKIN from PCOS! I have a post coming up on this. Would you like me to do a post on my food/exercise journal since you asked about it?

  2. Yes please! I'd love to hear more about it:) I've been reading Roni's blog and I really get that it would be nice to have a paper journal since online works but it's time consuming to go back and research my really good weeks to see what I was doing that made it go so well!
